A Prayer in Advent: for the Separated or Divorced

December 22, 2021

This Advent, join me in praying for The Church and for the people who are the churches. These prayers come from the Book of Common Prayer: Daily Prayer, published by our Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) sisters and brothers. It’s been on my shelf, recently re-discovered, and offers a wealth of riches. For example —

God of grace,

you are always working to hold us togetehr,

to heal division,

and make love strong.

Help all whose marriages fail to know that you are faithful.

Restore confidence,

bring understanding,

and ease the hurt of separation.

If they marry others

instruct them in better love,

so that vows may be said and kept with new resolve;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
